  • Remote Setup Connection

    I recently purchased this multifunction machine and have had multi problems establishing a wireless connection to my PC. I have been able to communicate, however, when I run the remote setup, it does not acknowledge the printer stating "make sure the printer is turned on, cannot access". I have tried with my firewall off and when a manual IP address added, I still get the error code. I am currently running Windows Vista. Any advice would be helpful. Thank You Deem
